Onedrive For Mac Business

The OneDrive for Business application for Mac and PC allows for the syncing of files to a user’s computer. This allows for a desktop copy for offline editing and a cloud copy for mobile access and high availability. Microsoft allowed Mac users to access OneDrive for Business files through the OneDrive app available in the Mac App Store. This standalone client gives IT administrators a way to directly deploy.

OneDrive offers the ability to store files in the cloud, access them from multiple devices, and share them with others.


The public preview of the OneDrive for Business sync client for Mac is available starting today. This app gives users the power to manage and synchronize files in a simple and secure way as it. Install the the Sync Client (macOS) Overview. OneDrive for Business is available for Macs running OS X El Capitan (10.11) and Mac OS Sierra (10.12) via the Mac Self Service application (see below). With the OneDrive for Business sync client, all of your files residing within your OneDrive folder will be automatically uploaded to the cloud.

When you install the OneDrive app for Mac, a copy of your OneDrive is downloaded to your Mac and put in the OneDrive folder. This folder is kept in sync with OneDrive. If you add, change, or delete a file or folder on the OneDrive website, the file or folder is added, changed, or deleted in your OneDrive folder and vice versa.

If you already have a personal OneDrive account set up on your Mac, you can link your Stanford account to it. See Change your preferences.
